The U. S. Superyacht Association said the ninth annual Captains Briefing and Reception will be held Jan. 22 -23 at IGY’s Yacht Club at Isle de Sol Marina in St. Martin in the Netherlands Antilles.

The seasonal event offers industry leaders and captains an opportunity to network and exchange information.

“This year’s event will provide even more of a social flair than in past years,” USSA chairman John Mann said in a statement. “There will be several different networking opportunities, starting with a golf outing at Mullet Bay Golf Course and continuing with several engagements offering a casual atmosphere to mingle, create new relationships and learn from each other’s experiences.”

The association said captains and senior officers can get firsthand answers to some of the major issues that affect their ability to do their jobs while networking in a social environment with leaders representing all facets of the superyacht industry.
